Dr. James Allman was professor at Crichton College for 18 years before joining the DTS faculty. Since 1987, he has been a visiting lecturer in Australia, Ukraine, India, and Siberia. He served as a translator for many of the psalms in the Holman Christian Standard Bible.
Jason Cook is a poet and storyteller in the ThM Media Arts Emphasis at Dallas Theological Seminary. Before coming to DTS, he spent 8 years practicing architecture. Much of that time he also served as a youth pastor. As a student at DTS, he has developed a growing interest in the issues of racial discrimination, biblical lament, compassion, and cross-cultural reconciliation. As an artist whose primary medium is the spoken word, he has been especially drawn to the theological significance of speaking and hearing.
